Chef Terry Pichor and his partner, Julie Marcopoulos, have recently relocated to the lower mainland to open, own and operate Il Posto! Julie grew up in Tsawwassen and with a father in restaurant business, she always knew she wanted to eventually open a place to call their own! Terry, originally from Manitoba, has been cooking in Vancouver for the majority of his career. A winner of two regional titles in the yearly Gold Medal Plates competition, Pichor is best known for his long-standing position as executive chef of the Relais & Châteaux property Sonora Resort. Prior to that, the chef worked at Four Seasons Vancouver and, more recently, helped open Vancouver Island’s Summit Restaurant at Villa Eyrie Resort, which was shortlisted for Canada’s Best New Restaurants 2017 by Air Canada enRoute magazine.
The chef is thrilled to be cooking in a more causal and simplistic style, yet staying true to his roots – using high quality, fresh ingredients from local sources. Both Terry and Julie are excited to reconnect with this community, bring a fresh spin on italian dining, and have Il Posto adopted as a loved neighbourhood spot for locals and visitors alike! ‘Italian’ can mean so many things, but for Il Posto – it will mean rustic, it will be about sharing and it will be about connecting.
